    This is definitely happening from hibernate, and it is fully in hibernate, not some silly sleep mode (fan, battery, everything goes off, zero power consumption). I need to leave it a few more nights to see if its resolved. Its also almost certainly something to do with the Win 10 update, was never a problem on win 7.
    I had the same issue with a Windows 7 machine, there was something scheduled and it would keep waking the machine to do it. So it has to be something to do with Updates. Check the tutorials on how to set WU to "Notify Only"

    @DavidE: It hasnt happened for a week so i presume so (thread marked as solved to reflect).

    @XweAponX: WU in win10 cannot be set to notify only. Its settings range from "downright stupid" to "you don't actually own this PC any more".

    Well you can't set it from within settings, you have to use Group Policy Editor. But you can only use that in Pro Systems. (Edit) but I feel your frustration.

    Well, you could 'trick' Windows Home by telling it you had a metered connection (which would more-or-less disable update). Or tell it not to install drivers. Or prevent it from installing certain updates by hiding them using the MS Show & Hide utility

    I know this old but I just had to fix this issue myself. Just in case this happens to anyone else....my machine was upgraded from Win7 to Win10. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what was causing it. Someone suggested running powercfg /lastwake. Well, that was useless information. Then I checked out all switches for powercfg and immediately nailed what was doing it:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /waketimers
    Timer set by [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\svchost.exe (SystemEventsBroker) expires at 10:18:36 AM on 5/18/2016.
    Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\Media Center\mcupdate_scheduled' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.

    Deleted that ******* and now all is well! It was a useless task anyway. It would wake the machine then failed to run because it couldn't find xxxxx file.
